Heya, I've met Richard at FOSDEM (while waiting for french^Wbelgian
fries at a kiosk :)) and discussed this live after this exchange, this
is a brief wrap-up for those following along. The main point here, on
which both myself and Richard agree, I think, is that the main point of
mentioning release advancement in DPN is motivating people to help. My
worry was mainly in the way the message was formulated "we're months
away from...". I think that it should rather be factual "this is what we
lack to release" and with very clear points how people could help. And
to achieve both that, and have a meaningful estimation, I think the only
way is asking the release team and working with them on the wording.

In the meantime, thanks for DPN, it rocks, ... as usual!
